Year 3 of the Prep Hoops Top 250 took place in Florida on Sunday.
The 2018 showcase was held at Daytona Mainland High School where a record 220 prospects competed on the day. 12 college programs were on hand with 10 video companies came out for the day.
Here is a look at the third part of the stock risers list from the younger group (2021-2022).
Justin Hicks (Bishop Snyder)
A strong-willed 6’1″ guard, Justin Hicks has a knack for being active on the floor. He’s almost always moving around and being noticeable for his side offensively and defensively. The 2021 Bishop Snyder guard is just starting to touch the surface of his talent. Hicks has a very high ceiling.
Jaden Golston (Montverde)
Jaden Golston has gotten taller and smarter all around since last year’s Expo. He’s a reliable outside shooter and he’s able to shoot off quick screens or passes. Golston’s rebounding ability and scrappiness has improved plenty. The 6’2” 2021 Montverde guard will see time on the national team late in the season but for now, he’s on the second best team there as a sophomore.
Marcellus Thomas (Kathleen)
Flying down the floor, handling the rock and acting determined all day long, Marcellus Thomas certainly impressed. The 6’2″ guard looks to be the next man up at an always athletic Kathleen program as a pure scorer. Thomas, a 2021 prospect is young but already poised for a breakout season.
Camden Easley (Orlando Christian Prep)
Taking his talents to back to back Class 3A state champion Orlando Christian Prep, Camden Easley is ready to do it all. The 2021 6’8″ forward proved to be a steady shot blocker, inside scorer and overall energy setter. Easley went extra hard when he matched up against E1T1 teammate James Repass and it was fun to watch the two go at it and have fun.
King Winkfield (Booker)
Part of a deep group of athletes that Booker brought to the expo, 2021 guard King Winkfield stretched the floor with his 3-point ability. A quarterback for the Tornadoes football team, Winkfield is skinny, but quick at his 5’10” frame. Look for Winkfield to continue to contribute as a key role player and pure shooter for Booker this fall.
